Pranayama in Perspective is a two hour flowing session of progressive pranayama that will give a ‘taste’ of the Five Phases of the Practice

  1. Foundations: The mechanics of ‘basic breathing’.
  2. Development: The use of breathing rhythms to manipulate prana.
  3. Alignment: Breathing patterns & visualisation techniques to bring
    harmony within the Koshas.
  4. Purification: Nadi Shodhana & the Bandhas.
  5. Classical Preliminary & developmental levels of Classical Pranayamas
    as described in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

In addition there will be a general practice of some of the main Pranayamas from each phase. There will be Pranayama Kriyas and Mudras, and  Breath based relaxation practices that will reinforce the main Pranayamas. You will deepen your understanding of the process through this workshop.
